    Historical Romance

    A Lady’s Deception by Pamela Mingle Haslemere Men #2 One night of abandon between Hugh and Eleanor before he left for war in Canada changed their lives in more ways than one. His return found him knighted, restoring the family residence, still estranged from his mother and brother and also still interested in Eleanor. The story is in keeping with the early 1800’s and at times I felt I was reading one of the books that I enjoyed as a teen that had been printed in the early 1900’s. I understood why things happened as they did in the book and it made me thankful that I do not live in that time period. I felt that Eleanor should have been more honest with Hugh from the first – especially since he asked her to be – and then on his return she missed many opportunities to tell him her secret that would have made some of the turmoil avoidable. I admired her desire to run a business but wondered at her inability to stand up to her parents – though that is not doubt in keeping with that time period. Hugh, though likable in some ways, seemed very rigid and though that rigidity was formed in his childhood I questioned it at times if he truly loved Eleanor. Though most of the story is in keeping with the time period there are things like insta-lust in a barn that didn’t seem plausible. I also questioned Eleanor’s father being so unaware of what Mr. Abbott was truly like – I also wondered why he let his wife get away with so very much. I would be interested in reading another book by this author. I did enjoy the story and would like to thank NetGalley and Entangled Publishing for the ARC – This is my honest review. 3-4 Stars

    Very Emotional

    Hugh Grey has finished his army service and returned home after the death of his father. After more than two years away he has a lot of responsibilities to take on. He carries a lot of emotional baggage and often speaks before he thinks. Miss Eleanor Broxton is an independent and strong minded young woman. She is working extremely hard towards a definite goal. The last thing she needs is the distraction that comes with the man who plays a big part in her reasons for working so hard. Get a big box of tissues ready because this is a very emotional story. Can our hero put away his harsh views and learn how to forgive?. A lovely heroine with a huge heart. A thoroughly enjoyable read.

    Loved it

    'A Lady's Decption' by Pamela Mingle is Book Two in the "Haslemere Men" Series. This is the story of Mr. Hugh Grey and Miss Eleanor Broxton. I have read the previous book but feel this can easily be a standalone book. Hugh and Eleanor had been friends when they were younger and on the Eve of him leaving for Canada he wanted to say goodbye to Eleanor. They had an encounter in the barn that meant everything to Eleanor and she hoped it meant something to Hugh. But for about three years she never heard from him and now his is back in town trying to fix up his old childhood home. Eleanor is working as a seamstress trying to earn money much to her parents upset but her and her parents have a secret that they are keeping. Eleanor feels this money will help her start a new life. but now Hugh is back and she knows she has to stay away from him to keep her secret. Eleanor is also somewhat upset that he never contacted her in all those years he was gone and he has been back in town for all most a month and he hasn't reach out to her. Hugh is trying to fix up his home and his life before moving forward with someone and he finds that he still has feelings for Eleanor but she seems distant and sad to him. This was a great second chance at love story. "My honest review is for a special copy I voluntarily read."

    Simply Swoon-worthy!

    Hugh and Eleanor's story was "sigh worthy". And, I mean that in a good way! Hugh was so romantic and sweet. He gave Eleanor a kitten, for Heaven's sake! That was a "swoon worthy" move in my opinion. Eleanor can't help but be swept off of her feet by Hugh, again. But, the secret she is hiding from him could destroy everything. I was instantly drawn into this tale of second chances, and I did not want to put my Kindle down. The characters were written with such heart and depth. The plot was interesting and fast moving. The descriptions of people, scenery and clothing were rich and vivid. And, in addition to everything else, I think I may have found a new "book boyfriend" in the dashing, handsome and romantic Sir Hugh! *I received a complimentary ARC of this book from NetGalley & Entangled Publishing, LLC in order to read and provide a voluntary, unbiased and honest review, should I choose to do so.
